Viv Benjamin, Ben Milgate, Otis Carey and Marita Cheng are all inspirational young Australians and I had the pleasure of working with them on a series of online videos to promote their part in the Optus Live More #Yes Project.
How often we are force-fed media stories about young people who are in trouble with the law, drugs and excess? They sell news subscriptions, magazines and newspapers. The trouble with these stories is that they show that celebrity and fame often have a negative effect on those in the spotlight.
Optus decided to find some inspirational young Australians and direct their energy to supporting other young Australians to make some waves, shake things up and get some inspirational projects happening in our world.
Great to be involved in the #yesproject and meet these wonderfully humble, gracious and awesome overachievers.
We really can do anything we want if we stay strong and are doing something we love!
Simply live the real you!
